Making Statements

In the fall and winter when it's a little more difficult to feel cute in layers, I turn to big jewelry pieces, especially statement necklaces. I think that they've become the easiest and cutest way to dress up any sort of basic piece, and I love them. I wore them a lot when I was at LBW and was stuck wearing button-downs and pencil skirts, and even suits. Who says you can't look chic in business formal?

Anyway, my latest necklace came in the other day and I was so excited! Where, of course, did I get it? eBay. Is there anywhere better? I'd much rather pay $10 on an eBay necklace than $148 from J. Crew, especially since it's sold out.

I love it because it's not too heavy and it can go perfectly with so many outfits, making statements.

And you can't go wrong with curls or bows.

This was seriously the most comfortable outfit!

Where do you like buying jewelry? What's your favorite popular statement necklace?



  1. What a great find, I should check out Ebay for jewelry, I can't bring myself to pay such high prices for jewelry not made of real gold or silver! The only problem is that so many sellers of inexpensive jewelry have questionable feedback! I just found jewelmint. They had a 50% off coupon on your first purchase (I think it's still there), so the jewelry was only something like $15 and it includes shipping

    1. I just signed up for jewelmint and it sounds so cool, I'll definitely have to make purchases from there! Also, there's a lot of great stuff like this on Etsy that I just realized...but I have so much fun bidding on eBay!

      Thanks so much!
